A Casual Business Outfit For Work Or Play
Since I’ve retired from working outside the home, I style more casual outfits. However, I’ve been getting requests to style a casual business outfit for those who work outside the home. Work attire is dependent on the workplace, and some might require a dressier look than this. But, for the majority of people, I think this casual outfit will work.
When it comes to casual business attire, it’s important to choose clothing that is professional and polished, but also comfortable enough to wear throughout the day. Choosing fabrics that are breathable and easy to move in, and accessories that add a touch of elegance without being too flashy or distracting is a recipe for the perfect outfit.
I chose this pretty blue Casual Linen Blend Button-Up Shirt because it is lightweight and looks polished and put-together. You would be able to wear this shirt on the weekends with jeans or shorts since it is so versatile. The shirt is available in several colors, but I thought the blue added a touch of femininity to the look.
I added the navy schoolboy blazer to give the outfit more of a business look. This is a nice quality blazer, and I love the gold buttons. You can wear this blazer later with jeans or over a dress, so you will get lots of opportunity to wear it other than work.
I’m a fan of Wit & Wisdom jeans, so I decided to try the ‘Ab’.Solution Skyrise Straight Leg Pants. I love the color of these pants, it looks like linen but it’s not. The seams down the front of the pants look modern and polished, and I thought the pants ran true to size. I saw some thought they ran large and some thought they ran small. If you are between sizes, then you might want to size down; otherwise, you usual size should work.
Brahmin is one of my favorite handbag manufacturers. They make quality handbags that are stylish, chic, polished, and you will carry them for years. I’ve carried this bag with jeans, shorts, and dresses, and it fine for work or play. This Brahmin Small Finley Satchel was my first Brahmin purchase, but I now have several others. Brahmin has a lot of fun colors and prints, although I chose a color that I knew I could carry with anything and anytime of the year. Here are some fun prints, let me know your thoughts on them.
I love wearing espadrilles in spring and summer. This cork wedge pair of TOMS are a last year’s purchase, but I’ll still be wearing them this year. The soft linen color looks great with everything, and I’ve worn them with jeans, shorts, dresses, and dress pants. They are very versatile.
I don’t do a lot of work outfits, so I would appreciate your feedback. Would you consider this a casual business outfit suitible for work?
